When Nancy Pelosi sat down for her keynote address at Women@NBCU’s annual Power of the Purse Breakfast this morning at Cipriani’s in New York, host Jeff Zucker wasted no time getting her take on the state of politics this year. Specifically, the outgoing NBC Universal CEO and president asked if Pelosi herself would still be in office in five weeks.
“I fully expect to be Speaker in five weeks,” she said. “I have big confidence in my candidates. They’re excellent; they’re battle-tested. They know what they believe, and they’re doing just fine in their districts.”
